Google "Brokered Democratic Convention".

Basically, if any candidate doesn't get the required number of delegates (1991 or somewhere close to that?), after the first vote, it goes into horse trading.

So, theoretically, if Uncle Joe was a few delegates short, and didn't pick up enough open delegates on the first vote, another dark-horse (Cuomo, anyone?) could be nominated and all of the delegates are released from their commitments to any given candidate. Then it becomes a free-for-all until a single person has the required number of delegates.

You get into "favorite son's" and all sorts of fun back-room deals then.

Unlikely, but possible.

OK. So Joe better hope the primaries continue because I don't think the party power structure is enamored with him any longer.

Still can't fathom that Joe is the best they got. He is putting on the 18th hole, with a driver...

Hey Cap, give it a rest. Trump is what he is and what we got. Times like this you should support him and unify. Be a leader...

I thought the dynamited hole analogy was funny.

As far as supporting the president, I will, when he gets serious about defending our country.

You'll notice in the "US handling of coronavirus", I supported Pence, he has actually acted presidential.
